*For wholesale investors only.

We are excited to introduce our newest product, the Bearish Principal Protected Note (PPN) – providing a unique opportunity for investors or crypto holders anticipating a potential decrease in Bitcoin’s price. 

Macroeconomic uncertainty continues to loom with a potential global recession and ongoing inflationary concerns across traditional markets, and regulatory concerns in the US for digital asset firms, These may be short to medium-term catalysts for prices to fall across a multitude of asset classes.

With this PPN, you can participate in the total downside performance of Bitcoin, while maintaining a 90% protection level on your capital. This means the maximum possible loss is limited to just 10% of your initial investment. 

Our Bearish PPN can be a short-term hedge for your crypto portfolio by overlaying this strategy on top of your long-term holdings. Your net portfolio positioning after full implementation would mean you are protected from downside moves in the crypto markets – with your entire portfolio still benefiting from any move greater than 10% higher.

This strategic tool can also be beneficial as a hedge against your traditional equity portfolios. As crypto has much higher volatility than other asset classes, the downside moves have historically been greater than traditional asset classes, and therefore return more when used as a hedge (short) against your portfolio.

A modicum of risk management in the crypto space can lead to much better risk-adjusted returns.

Consider an investment of $50,000 in our Bearish PPN. If Bitcoin’s price falls below the Strike Level at the product’s expiry, you could stand to gain from that drop as you are short the market. But if the price of Bitcoin increases, your risk is capped – you can only lose a maximum of 10% of your initial investment. This is what makes our Bearish PPN not only a great hedge but also a smart risk versus reward payoff for those with a short-term view that markets may fall.

Here’s our payoff structure from Bearish Principal Protected Note with 90% Protection:

This product suits investors who expect the underlying price of Bitcoin to be below the Strike Level at the expiry date. It’s important to note that the payout amount is not linked to the value of Bitcoin at any time other than the observation dates.

This is yet another testament to our commitment towards revolutionizing the digital asset investment space. Our Bearish PPN is one of the many unique, tailored financial solutions Zerocap offers. We provide a wide range of potential investment strategies, tailored to suit different market conditions and investor expectations.
